The federal government has concluded arrangements to open the new terminals of Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport (NAIA), Abuja and Port Harcourt International Airport (PHIA) by the end of October this year.

Minister of State for Aviation, Senator Hadi Sirika, disclosed this recently during the Grand opening of the Legend Hotel Lagos Airport Curio Collection by Hilton located within the premises of private terminal facility of Quits Aviation at Murtala Muhammed International Airport (MMIA), Lagos.
Sirika , who informed that the federal government would spend huge sum of money in improving infrastructures at the airports especially the Murtala Muhammed Airport in Lagos also informed that the two other international airports in Lagos and Kano would follow suit.
He said, while many Nigerians had taken to the social media celebrating the new terminal in Kotoka International Airport, Ghana, the facility is a child’s play compared to the new terminals to be commissioned in Nigeria soon.
The minister however disclosed that the terminals would be concessioned for a period of 25-30 years to enable the private sector run them profitably while providing first class services to Nigerian air travelers and foreigners.
According to him, such concession agreement does not imply ceding its assets entirely to the private sector as the designated airports would be handed to the concessionaire for a maximum of 30 years.
